California - Day 5

Our last full day in California was calm and quiet, especially after blowing a ton of cash at Disneyland.  While perusing the TripAdvisor website I came across the Irvine Regional Park.  It was a bit of a drive but there was lure of a train ride and a small zoo.

I have to say this was a great day.

We took a train ride around the park.  The conductor did a great job sharing a bit of history of the park along with a bit of humor for the adults.

After the train we walked through the park up to the OC Zoo.  Along the way we saw that the park rented boats, bikes, and water bikes.

I think my Barbie had one of these in the 80's
Zoo is not quite right, it's more of a glorified petting zoo, but it was just enough for us on this day.  We saw a bald eagle, snakes, chickens, and even a burro.  At the back of the zoo the kids even got to brush goats.

The pièce de résistance was when M saw the horse rides.  She is in love with horses and could not get in line fast enough.  
We explored a bit more on our way back to the car and then went for a drive around the OC while G napped in the car.
